You know those polls that your local news stations periodically put on the screen? Who the hell actually votes in those? Apparently I do.
I voted in a TV news poll.
I’m not sure how widespread this news has been, but the other day, a cougar was loose in a neighborhood in Chicago. And I’m not referring to your average North Shore mom coming downtown for a mani and pedi. A real live wild animal, running loose through city intersections. Some third party witnesses reported seeing the cat riding down Western Avenue in a rickshaw while smoking a cigarette.
In any event, Chicago’s finest shot the cougar twelve times and killed it. The poll on the news was asking “Do you think the police were justified in shooting the cougar?” I responded via text with “no.” I clearly realize it was a safety hazard to have a wild animal running through the streets, but aren’t there tranquilizers for this sort of thing?
